More prosecutions for rioting expected  Listenfacebook
Senior Counsel, Ronny Tong, says there could be more prosecutions against people who participate in riots in future. He says this message was sent out clearly following the conviction of three men who took part in the riots in Mong Kok on Lunar New Year Day last year. Tong says people who take part in demonstrations should ensure that they do not breach the peace. He tells Annemarie Evans that he hopes the next government could listen to people with grievances so that they would not resort to violence.

He's accused of breaching the constitution and of human rights abuses in connection with thousands of extra-judicial killings of drug-users. Gary Alejano - an opposition lawmaker - conceded his impeachment drive was unlikely to succeed, but he said he hoped it would allow more Filipinos to speak out against what he called abuse of power. RTHK's Manila correspondent, Alan Robles, speaks to Annemarie Evans about the case.
